The Team

  • Sandler Consulting has a core team of long-established and successful coaches. Each coach has been carefully hand-picked for the experience and skill that they bring to the field. We have worked together for many years and deliberately keep the team small in order to guarantee quality and consistency.
  • Through working as a team we are often able to deliver extra value to our clients. When two or more of us coach within the same business, common themes usually emerge. While protecting client confidentiality, we feed back to the business those themes that reflect organisational and systemic issues.
  • We invest time in sharing new ideas and techniques. By regularly reviewing our work, and extending our knowledge and skills, we ensure that our practice remains at the cutting edge of executive coaching.
  • All our coaches use coaching supervision and several of us provide it. This is the discussion of anonymised cases with another senior professional in the field – standard practice in the helping professions. Supervision provides quality control for clients and a fresh perspective for the coach. The identity of the client and their business is treated entirely confidentially.

  • Catherine has a formidable intellect, and is also a very good judge of people. She clearly has a great range and depth of experience that she can draw on to help those she is coaching.

  • My company’s growth was being limited by its ineffective historical structure and its managers' lack of people-management ability. As a result of Sandler Consulting’s highly-effective coaching we restructured, upskilled, and saw our firm unlock its potential to grow significantly in revenue and profitability.

    Executive Chairman
  • Catherine's razor-sharp insights helped me to decode some difficult situations and develop strategies to tackle them with assurance. She is incisive, strategic, savvy and shrewd - not afraid to challenge yet very supportive. I also found her fun to work with and very human.

    Senior Partner
  • Ed has a remarkable ability to create genuine connection and trust. Even the most skeptical senior managers are won over by his patience, intelligence and strategic view, usually identifying their collaboration with Ed as one of their most valuable developmental experiences.

  • Ed is an extremely effective executive coach. With professionalism and a clear sense that he is ‘on your side’, Ed built a profound understanding of my behavioural preferences. He coached me to flex my leadership style with tangible results…improved working relationships, more effective leadership and practical techniques for the future.

    General Counsel
  • Since working with Jani, my leadership effectiveness has changed dramatically, which has been noticed by my team, line-manager and peers. I've been promoted twice and have led a declining area of our business into growth.

  • Jani's coaching has been life-changing. It has brought a consciousness to my skills and style and enabled me to bring the best out in myself and therefore the organisation.

    Board Director
  • Rachel's coaching helped me to excel in a period of transition. As a result I was able to chart a course to the top team where I now sit. The work we did enabled me to be strategic, while working at full pelt, and played a significant part in my success .

    Board Director
  • As the leader of an organisation, it’s important to have time to reflect. I worked with Rachel before and after I became CEO and have found it incredibly beneficial. It is really useful to have a high level confidante to discuss business issues with in a constructive and confidential setting.

  • Sarah was a fantastic coach. She had a very open, transparent and understandable approach. She opened my thinking more broadly in terms of what kind of leader I wanted to be and what my values were. At the end of the coaching the feedback I received from others showed significant positive changes that had been received well.

    Senior Director
  • The work Sarah did with our team on Executing Strategy in Complexity blew me away. She helped us realise and articulate what we unconsciously knew but could not consciously or coherently land on.

    Managing Director
  • I would highlight the personal concern shown by Catherine and her team of executive coaches for their clients. I have been very pleased to award them work.

    Global Head of HR
  • I would recommend the Sandler coaches unreservedly.

    Managing Director
  • The range and quality of the input from the Sandler Consulting team has been second to none in making a real difference to the skills and motivation of the leadership team of our market-leading £2.6 billion business.
